One thing I've been keeping from you regarding our weekend Thrift Shop Hop
was the excellent deal one of my ladies got.
I spied this black dresser (nothing super amazing) but it had over
$70 worth of reproduction glass knobs on it.
The dresser had a price of $17.50 so I offered to add the dresser to the ever waiting list
of things to re purpose and she could take the knobs.
When I woke the next morning I walked out to see this dresser I had agreed to take on.
So simple, so boring, but it was made of plywood and solid wood, I can work with this.
All I could see was these funny divided drawers ...
I always tell ppl to work with what you got!
So I took a simple boring six drawer dresser and turned it into
a funky vintage looking map drawer chest.
All 6 drawers are completely lined with a heavy sheet music paper.
I added a dozen vintage handles with an antiqued brass finish to make it look like 12 drawers.
This is a super multifunctional piece, excellent height for a buffet,
would look fabulous as a TV console, or of course it would be great for bedroom storage.
I did work heavily on the structure, added a heavy and beautifully curving base molding,
along with a set of aluminum cabriolet legs
The legs I used on this piece are from Richelieu, product # BP560060
